I can't put into words what made My lip quiver when we kissed
 
It wasn't love the first time
Just a drunken night of bliss
 
I never knew a girl like you would fall for a goofball such as myself
It was quite surprising when I realized we were face to face
It had been some time since a women was standing in that space you were half a year older than I was it a mistake? Did you trip and fall and your lips just landed
in that place?

However it happened,

it happened

and I couldn't have
asked for more

Later that night I lent you my coat you said it smelt like me
and you held it close
 
There has to be something between us
 
Collywobbles get the best of me every time my screen lights up from you texting me
My lip still quivers with every kiss could this be love from a
drunken night of bliss?

I laugh 'til
my stomach hurts
 
our birthdays are
six months apart

Your eyes skip the
beat of my heart

I call all your make up

Cover up

Because it hides your
True beauty's mark
 
We are together now
 
We sleep in the same bed
I love it when I wake up before you and get to watch you rest
You are so peaceful

So beautiful

But your hair is a mess
Sometimes you snore it just makes me love you more
A woman with such radiance can still be human and my lip
still quivers when we kiss
I wish the story ended here
 
But I must confess
 
There is a reason my lip quivers every time we kiss
 
All of a sudden distance grew
You had no time for me
I still had time for you
 
Then came the lies the tormenting of my mind the late nights and the "Iloveyouless" goodbyes

The cheating

The fighting

The stress

And the crying
 
I didn't know what to do
What could I do?
 
My lip quivered for you
 
I just wanted explanations
you said sorry walked out and that was the end of the conversation

You moved in with your sister
I drank to escape the feeling of despair

you never officially left me
but I got the point
 
We were nothing
 
Now I know why my lip
quivered when we kissed
 
It wasn't love on that
night of bliss
 
It was a warning I never heed
 
Telling me to turn the cheek
